Broken


Every day in my life is a struggle.
Trying to break free,
Get away from the
Intimidating looks and menacing faces.

In middle school I was told
I would never be beautiful,
That I was just another freak.
I let those words shape me.

Now the school halls scare me.
When I'm around people
I put my guard up, staying quiet because
I'm afraid to let others know me.

All around me people succeed,
And I can't even open up.
Afraid of what they might say about me.
I wish I was stronger.

Now I try to just shut it out,
But I'm broken.
I want to hide it but
How do you hide something so big
Behind a girl so small?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem after we started the poetry unit in my Sophomore English class. I had been feeling down and people were picking on me so I just put me feelings on paper and then I typed it up.

    Your poem touched me.
    'I want to hide it but
    How do you hide something so big
    Behind a girl so small? ' - Please do not hide. Just come out of your shell and see how large the world is! Ignore your critics. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?

To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
